Our event was truly transformative. Lola Creative has a knack for not overcomplicating things which makes them really easy to work with...
Misguided events can easily be seen as wasteful and underwhelming.

We create Honorable Events. That means the GOOD created by your event is not overshadowed by irresponsible waste. Lola promotes sustainable flower growing, low waste events, and low-impact practices of all kinds. At Lola, we compost our plant waste, reuse materials, and source locally and responsibly. We have ceased the use of floral foam for its toxicity and non-biodegradability.
Every event at Lola Creative is customized with your intentions in mind. Each project begins with a complimentary consultation at our workshop or at your place. At your consult, we will talk all about what makes you tick and the scope of your project. After our consultation, you will receive a Proposal and plans for the next steps. Proposals can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 month depending on the size of your project. After a signed service agreement we dig in as your new creative partner.

How do I go about choosing an event designer?
Choose somebody you feel comfortable with sharing your ideas. Choose somebody creative but with a serious aptitude for managing a complex project. Choose somebody that gives you a sense of relief and confidence. Choose somebody that makes you think, "Hell yeah!"
What's this about sustainability?
You've probably heard it before, Green Events, Sustainable, Organic, Local... It has to do with thinking about the entire life cycle of your materials and how the different elements that go into making your materials affects people and the environment. It applies to everything but for flowers, it means, thinking about soil, water, pesticides and herbicides, working conditions for people, local economy, transportation, and disposal. For other materials it is about what it took to make the item and what happens to it after we use it at your event. Is it recycled? Will it jam up a landfill? Will it be reused?
Flowers that claim local, organic, and/or sustainably grown claim that they have thought of any number of these things too and have minimized things that ruin soil, misuse water, use of pesticides and/or herbicides, and take a lot of time and gas to get to you. Locally, that mark of sustainability for flowers is called 'salmon safe.' We use these items whenever possible because it just makes a lot of sense. We also compost all our floral waste.
Do you offer planning services?
Yes and No. We plan all elements that involve the look and feel of your event and coordinate all vendors to pull it together, however we do not supply ‘day-of’ coordination or wedding planning for your personal needs at this time. For example, we don’t pull together your hotels, your personal timelines, your vows, etc. For that we can recommend some great day of coordinators for you. You can read further about what we do offer on the event design and weddings services page. We do offer staffing during your event when we have designed your event.
We run our biz out of our studio in sleepy Edmonds. We encourage you to stop by to discuss your event and peruse our vast selection of rental items and specialty pieces. Please contact us first as we are sometimes out and about.
How do I know what my event will look like?
We offer sketches, scaled drawings, and image boards. Based on the size and complexity of your event, we can do mock-ups of individual pieces and digital mockups of event spaces.
Short answer is, it's gonna look great.
But, the more communication we have up front, the better we will be able to match what is in your noggin.
How does your pricing work?
Typically all our events and design are priced as a lump sum attached to a specific scope of work that we will work out at our initial meeting. Pricing will list a design fee, offering, and onsite operations fee for the setup, staffing, and take down of your event.
I am SO not a design person. Can I just tell you my thoughts for my event and let you figure it out?
We love that. But we also love it when you have some idea of ways you'd like to make your event special. We'll talk with you about what you'd like your guest's experience to be like and we will run with it.
Where do you deliver?
The short answer is everywhere.
Delivery costs depend on location and are wrapped up into the 'operations fee' on your invoice. We DO travel all over the country.
I'm on a budget. Any suggestions?
After we've talked style, budget, size, and program elements with your, the best thing to do for budget events is to be very up front with a range you are comfortable with, let her know if there is any wiggle room, then throw your hands in the air and say, "Have at it creative guide!"
Your designer will be able to match your style with an appropriately awesome look. Another great option is to focus the bulk of the money into larger statement pieces and keep the numerous items smaller and simpler.
Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.
A misguided event can seem wasteful. We craft artful events with the goal of massive human connection.
